Linda de Vries is a neonatologist and pediatric neurologist, and obtained her PhD degree in Utrecht (1987). Since 1989, she
has worked in the department of Neonatology in the University Medical Center Utrecht, where she is a professor in Neonatal
Neurology. Her research focuses on prediction of neurodevelopmental outcome in high risk preterm and full-term newborns, using
neurophysiology and neuro-imaging methods. These at risk children are also seen by her in the follow-up clinic until early
childhood. She has a special interest in neonatal stroke and brain plasticity. Her work has been published in >400 publications.
Dr. Hannah C. Glass is a pediatric neurologist, founding co-director of the Neurointensive Care Nursery (NICN), and Director
of Neonatal Critical Care Services at the UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital. She is also the program director of the Neonatal
Neurology Fellowship Program. Dr. Glass specializes in brain focused care for children with neurological conditions diagnosed
in the newborn period, including hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy, stroke and seizures, as well as brain injury following preterm
Dr. Glass joined the Division of Child Neurology at UCSF in 2006. She earned her medical degree at McGill
University and completed pediatrics and child neurology training at the University of Calgary. She trained in neonatal neurology
and earned a master's degree in clinical research at UCSF.
Dr. Glass has received funding from the National Institutes
of Health (NIH), Patient Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI), March of Dimes, Cerebral Palsy Alliance, and the Pediatric
Epilepsy Research Foundation to conduct research that aims to improve developmental outcome following newborn brain injury.
